Most weeks we pick one Parkrun to focus on and meet at Freedom Leisure to sort out cars share usually 7.40 to 7.50am depending on how far we need to travel. Cafe afterwards is always an important part of the morning. Locally there are Parkruns at Eastbourne, Hastings Prom, Hove Prom, Preston Park Brighton, Hove Park, Bevendean Brighton, Peacehaven, Haywards Heath, East Grinstead, Bedgebury nr Wadhurst, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Tilgate Park Crawley.

The AGM is on Tuesday 14 January 2019 in the room past the cafe at Freedom Lesiure after the club run. Snacks will be provided
In most months 1 or 2 events are selected as particular events we seek to support: so hopefully we can achieve a strong turnout for each of these events: lets make a crowd. Mostly these will be 5 mile or 10k so anyone can do them. Please see combined events list for a fuller list of events we participate in (click on Events then button combined events list: including later Focus events which are shown in bold). Our next Focus event is Ashdown Forest Cross countsy on Sunday 13 January 2019 followed by Heathfield Park Cross country on 3rd February 2019.
The 2018/19 season dates are on the Cross Country tab starting the next events are Ashdown Forest Cross countsy on Sunday 13 January 2019 followed by Heathfield Park Cross country on 3rd February 2019.
Sussex Grand Prix events
The list of 2019 races has not yet been published on the Sussex Grand Prix website but I understand this year there will be 12 races the same 10 as last year plut Rye 10 mile and Bexhill 5k. For a full score you need to complete 6 out of the 12 races (last year 6 out of 10 and as with last year and you no longer need to complete races of 10 miles or more).
Main Group: Tuesday Training
Tuesday training is a mix of steady runs and more 'technical' sessions such as hills or repetitions. During the spring/Summer we mainly train off road in the winter the runs are in Uckfield town.
Monday and Thursday Beginners/Joggers Groups
There are beginners/joggers groups on Monday 9.30am (term time only) and Thursday 7.30pm. These are relaxed social groups which cater for absolute beginners, joggers and runners looking for a more relaxed run. See the beginners tab for further details
Track training is at Crowborourgh 1st and 3rd Wednesday (£1) Uckfield Runners session (restarting March 19) and at Eastbourne (Cross Levels Way, Eastbourne BN21 2UF) on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month from 7pm (£3) joint session with Heathfield Road Runners. Both sessions are for 1 hour and there is a charge of £3. Both are suitable for all abilities.
